This year marks the 95th anniversary of the “Sunny Kid from Philadelphia", by the legendary Mario Lanza. As one of the most beloved singers of all time, his repertoire includes over 800 arias and songs and 7 films. He is remembered and idolized by many as performers and audiences from around the world continue to be inspired by his music.

On May 24th, David Gvinianidze and Michael Bulychev-Okser in cooperation with Cultural and Educational Perspectives, Inc. present a program consisting of some of the most famous and beloved operatic arias, melodies from musicals and films, and Neapolitan pieces from the repertoire of one of the greatest tenors of the 20th century—Mario Lanza.

To celebrate this occasion, we present a unique program, which features the golden voices of our generation who will help you believe in magic again. Hailing from three continents (America, Asia and Australia), the three tenors symbolize the vast popularity of the American tenor around the world.

Choong Lee: Tenor (South Korea)
Pianist: Michale Bulychev-Okser
